Chapter 1

Before they met, Jake Kristopher was sitting in the third row of
Woolsey Hall, Yale’s biggest auditorium, glancing up at the balcony

Sophie Jones was craning forward over the balcony rail when Jake
caught a glimpse of her and went still. She had golden hair and

his shoulders. Sophie leaned back, dropped her hand to her gut,
and wondered why she’d felt such a charge.

Discussion Questions

1. The epigraph of this novel focuses on the power of connection. How does this theme recur throughout the novel? How do these words set up what is to come? After having finished the novel, has your perspective on connection changed?

2. In part one, Sophie is often described in childlike terms. Why do you think this is? What does it say about her character?

3. Have you or someone you know ever experienced a love like Jake and Sophie?
